Hello lovelies ! It’s has been a while since I wrote a discussion post ! Today I want to talk about fanfictions !
Many years ago I was a big fan of fanfictions. I was a member of a forum, and a very active member of the fan fiction section. I was writing and reading.
I was also often visiting fanfiction.net, a pretty famous fan fiction website.
But it was years ago. Up until a few months ago, I was afraid of reading fanfictions turned into actual books. It was more developed than I thought possible… Fifty Shades Of Grey, After, and many more.
I always refused to read any. I don’t really know why but I got this stupid idea stupid in my mind that a fanfiction couldn’t be a good book. A fanfiction can be great, but it’s still written by people that aren’t necessary writers. In my head, a fanfiction published as a book couldn’t be good. It’s probably because Fifty Shades Of Grey was heavily criticized for its writing style (and its content, but this post isn’t about it haha)
A few months ago I went to a signing event in Marseille, to meet Colleen Hoover. Anna Todd was there. And I talked with people who adored her books. I also learned that a big Romance festival would take place near my city, and Anna Todd would be here once again.
I decided I would read as many books from authors attending than I could. Hence I picked After. Of course it has its flaws, but I was really surprised by how addicting it was ! I was hooked.
I changed my mind about fanfictions. There are good and bad fanfictions, as much as there are good and bad books.
